CD Outdoors is operated by Chesapeake native Capt. Chris Dollar who has more than 25 years experience leading outdoor adventures on the Chesapeake Bay. On fly or light tackle, center console or kayak, Capt. Chris$ will guide you through the Chesapeake's magical marsh guts or glide across grass flats to cast for rockfish (stripers), bluefish, speckled trout, and red drum.

We fish from Native Watercraft kayaks, the most stable fishing yaks on the water, and use top-quality fishing equipment including St. Croix rods. We also fish from an Everglades 243cc center console. Need a bigger boat for family or company fishing trip? We connect you with experienced Bay captains. Call (410) 991-8468 or email to book your trip.
